Lafayette Police Foundation

The Lafayette Police Foundation was formed in early 2016 in order to support, advance and promote public safety through education, service and development of good citizens and future leaders in the field of law enforcement. Every dime you donate helps our heroic men and women in blue get the equipment, training and outreach programs they need to fight crime.

Current Initiatives

Retirement & Recognition Ceremony

Join us Friday, May 17th, 2019, to celebrate and publicly recognizing the amazing sacrifice, accomplishments and lives of service of our retiring officers. It’s also the time when we’ll name the Officer of the Year, the Civilian Employee of the Year and present multiple Life Saving Awards. Donations to defray the costs of the banquet and support other foundation priorities can be designated to our General Fund.

K-9 Initiative

Did you know that the Lafayette Police Department K9 Unit consists of five patrol trained dogs?   Four of the K9 Units are assigned to the Uniform Division and one is assigned to the Street Crimes Unit.  All of the LPD K-9 Units were trained at Von Liche Kennels, located in Denver, Indiana.
